The Mission

5th Decade of Service


Since 1972 Life Rebuilders has been bringing the Good News to the afflicted, strengthening the brokenhearted and proclaiming freedom to those who feel hopeless. Thus, we as servant-staff are blessed to witness a christ centered transformation: The cleansing of the body, the changing of the heart, the renewing of the mind and the saving of the soul!

History and Path to Today

The founder of the ministry, a Minneapolis police officer saw first-hand the unfortunate high rates of recidivism (returning to prison) and the associated high rate of drug and alcohol relapse coupled with the indignity of unemployment. He knew there was a better way to break the shackles of addiction and the cycle of imprisonment. Thus, Midwest Challenge was born.

Over the past decade, this successful singular mission that faithfully met the needs of the imprisoned expanded by developing additional ministries designed to meet the needs of the addicted and the homeless. We are now meeting the needs of both men and women with short & long term transitional housing. Thus, Life Rebuilders, the Ministries of Midwest Challenge was born.

Through the decades the mission of Midwest Challenge has branched out and changed shape. However the core desire to offer the opportunity for men (and women) from all walks of life to find a safe place to renew their spirit, emotional and physical strength as well as get their lives going on a path of transformation...still remains.
